Rare Drams imports Rare and Hard to find Whiskies from Scotland

The scotch, resting dormant in the cask is bottled for your pleasure without any changes to the "amber nectar" inside.This provides a unique taste in every cask produced.

Each bottle comes with it's own numbered certificate. Rich and golden color in the bottle, it carries an equally rich and full flavoured Islay nose with balanced smoke and coastal aromas of soft tar, iodine, rock pools, seaweed and "Arbroath Smokies". The palate essentailly replicates the nose with expected Islay phenolic traits initally but displays incredibly sweet bonfire ashes later. The finish is long, smokey, still oceanic and rather sweet.
**the bottle shown is not Laphroaig however packaging is identical**
Only 5% of all casks are good enough to be used as single cask bottlings.
